world. it's the car show, the auto show right here in san francisco. and what have you got for us this time around, lawrence? >> reporter: guys, you know what? i didn't think i needed a new car but you know what? after seeing this, i need a new car. >> we all do. >> reporter: how about this? this is a mercedes sls, what a car this is! spectacular view. it almost looks like the batmobile. this is something else. but this is the kind of car that you're going to see here at the auto show here if you want to come down to the moscone center. i'm going to sit in this. how about this? take a look for yourself how spectacular this is. nice leather seating and check out the speedometer. can you believe that? that since 240 miles per hour! i have that need for speed! who doesn't. etch getting to work early in the morning maybe not that fast. i have kevin diamond here the director of the auto show. kevin, it's get to be fun to just have neat cars like this in the show. >> yeah. we're really excited. this is one of the best shows we have had in several years. we have to thank all the manufacturers for bringing in
6:46 am
the top of the line displays some of the best cars in the world. and, you know, we just think we're going to have a great show. we are opening this morning at 10a we are going to run through monday and we invite everybody to come down and really experience this. we are opening this morning at 10 a.m. >> reporter: we're showing you the beautiful mercedes sls but we have electric cars and all kinds of different things for people to see. >> we like to say that there is something for every member of the family. you have the electric cars, you have race cars, you have hotrods, you have classic cars. if you are in the market for a new car in the next six months, come on down here, you can see everything all under one roof. maybe just you're a car guy or an aficianado. there's plenty to see here and we welcome you down here. kids 12 and under free when acompanied by an adult. >> reporter: you have tens of thousands of people coming down here today but you guys are open throughout the next couple of days through the weekend so you're going to bring, how many thousands of people through here? >> well, you know, we expect to bring in hundreds of
6:47 am
thousands down here. we are open through monday. 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. except for that final monday when we'll close at 8 p.m. get down here. you got to see what we have going on down here. again, the manufacturers have done something marvelous and this facility i mean, it's rated one of the best in the country, moscone center. absolutely wonderful place. >> reporter: it is really nice and what a day to drive a car like this. you got a beautiful sunny day, drive around in a car like this. you want to get noticed! you'll get noticed in this thing, that's for sure. out the door, it is chilly so you want to crank up the heater a bit. some 30s and 40s in the valleys and patchy fog too. we are expecting lots of sunshine though as we head in toward the afternoon and those temperatures comfortably up into the 60s. i think high pressure will be building in these next couple of days and as it does of course that rain line is going to head well to the north. that will make sure that we keep things nice and dry here right on in through the weekend. but i think we're going to see temperatures today up into the 60s. beautiful weather all throughout the afternoon and it looks like it will continue.
6:48 am
the big concern maybe over the next few days is some of that patchy fog. other than that, lots of sunshine and dry weather through the first part of the next week. so if you want to do it come on down to moscone center. how about this? what a nice ride, gianna. this is my dream car now. what do you think? >> i think it's awesome! i think we're all waiting for you to drive it over and pick us up. >> reporter: oh, i love this car... [ laughter ] >> i think lawrence is a fan of that car. he is in love, that's what michelle just said. he's in love. you might be in love with the freeways this morning. look at this. if you are headed to grandma's house today, traffic is very light. no delays to report. golden gate bridge looking good as you work your way out of marin county into san francisco. elsewhere, if you are taking mass transit, the good news is, everything is back on time vta light rail service was using bus bridges because of an accident on the tracks at first and brokaw. that's been cleared. everything though is on a holiday schedule so plan for that. no ace train service today. that resumes on monday. good news as well, northbound 680 at jackson road they have
6:49 am
reopened one lane there. so traffic is getting through there on the off-ramp. it's not affecting the main lines of the freeway. but there was a broken sprinkler that was causing a lot of flooding on that ramp. but again, things should be clearing there shortly. back to you. >> i think lawrence will fall out of love when he finds out how much that car costs. love affair done. 6:49. the thanksgiving holiday means wall street is off for the day. stocks rallied yesterday though on news of the cease-fire in the middle east. the dow added 48 points, nasdaq gained 10, international markets rose today though on word that china answer manufacturing expanded for the first time in 13 months. silicon valley will have to wait a while longer for the spaceship to land. the spaceship is that huge elaborate circle shape headquarters they plan to build in cupertino. steve jobs laid out plans for the spaceship last year at a city council meeting a few months before he died. the building was expected to open in 2015 but now likely the middle of 2016. construction begins sometime next year.
6:50 am
the average american is expected to take in nearly 4500 calories today. if you can believe that. but this may make you feel better. dr. kim says it's okay to stuff yourself this thanksgiving. got to do it. thank goodness. apparently it's the latest way to lose weight. who knew. you can even eat candy but not just any kind. >> reporter: from sodas to burgers, the more we get, the more we eat but that can have consequences. >> obesity, diabetes, cholesterol problems. >> reporter: now eat more and lose weight. >> really? >> reporter: really. it's called volumetrics. >> could larger portions be better than trying to limit so severely your portion size? because people don't feel full. >> reporter: the idea, eat until you're full. your body measures fullness by the volume of food in your stomach. but you can't supersize with just any kind of food. you want to pile up on foods
6:51 am
that are low calorie, nutrient rich, and packed with water. >> vegetables have a multitude of nutrients and fiber. >> reporter: this registered die at the time, jo ann hattner, says there's science to back it up. you will full faster on fewer calories. don't skip salad or soup as a first course. >> you want the food to be about 150 calories before the meal. >> reporter: another idea, do a little math and calculate the food's energy density. take a food divide the number of calories by the number of grams and try to stick to choices that amount to two or less. lettuce, apples and broccoli are zero. tilapia, baked potato and egg are one of the salmon, miso soup and guacamole are two. another way to add volume, add air. whipped foods contain volume but fewer calories. >> when you make a smoothie or you make a shake, you're whipping air into that. >> reporter: it's better to enjoy cotton candy or jellybeans or whipped butter instead of a pad of butter.
6:52 am
>> sounds logical. i think that's a really great idea. >> makes sense. >> reporter: dr. kim mulvihill cbs 5. >> my banana split cake i made last night? 2,000 calories. >> my parents say if you bring a calculator to the thanksgiving day table you're out! 6:52. the holiday shopping rush happening now. the bay area shoppers who just missed some mighty big deals. >> and prepping turkey plus all the fixings for a bay area tradition. the volunteers ready to serve thousands of thanksgiving meals this morning.
